MUNSTER | Town officials on Monday attempted to put at ease a bride-to-be concerned about damage caused by settling at the Centennial Park Clubhouse.

Amanda Hires, of Munster, attended the Town Council's meeting to learn more about the town's plan to repair the damage, which includes a shift in the shaft of a freight elevator and cracks in drywall.

Hires, who has an August wedding planned at the clubhouse, said when she called the clubhouse, a manager there had no knowledge of any problems regarding the facility.

"From my understanding, I was at least the 15th or 16th bride to call today," Hires said.

Hires wanted to know more about the timing of any repair work and how it might affect her wedding day.

"After the time, money and expense that's gone into it, I certainly don't want construction work, obviously, going on," she said.

The Town Council met Monday to seek proposals from contractors for the clubhouse repairs.

Town Manager Thomas DeGiulio said no wedding parties would be put in a situation where there would be heavy equipment outside. He said a letter likely will go out by the end of the week to people who have contracts for events at the clubhouse.

Most of the work required would be done on the inside, lower level of the building, DeGiulio said.

"The issues we are having are noticeable on the inside," DeGiulio said. "The building is not unsafe or anything else like that."

Town Council President John Reed said the town will try to have the work completed "at the least busy time."

DeGiulio said the town will know more about the repair plan by March.
